Remy Cabella – This Is A Move I Really Wanted To Make

6:41 am, Monday, July 14th, 2014 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 10 Comments

Newcastle United have finally completed the signing of former Montpellier attacking midfielder Remy Cabella, and it was all done and dusted yesterday, as the Chronicle had reported that Cabella would be jetting in to complete the move – and they were certainly right about that.

The 24-year-old is a versatile player and can play on either wing and also in a Yohan Cabaye like central role, and he has signed a six year deal at the club.

It will be interesting to see where Alan Pardew plays him – and it may depend on who else we can get through the door this summer – but we would expect Pardew to play him on the right wing.

Remy returned from being part of the French squad in the World Cup – which Germany won last night when they beat Argentina with a late extra time goal (113 minutes) from Mario Goetze, who showed great skill in chesting the ball down before guiding it first time into the goal with his left foot.

This is what Cabella had to say yesterday:

“”It is great to finally be a Newcastle player.”

“This is a move that I really wanted to make, as I have heard nothing but good things about Newcastle United from everyone I spoke to.”

“I wanted to join a great English club and that is why I have arrived here. I’m looking forward to pulling on the shirt and playing in this magnificent stadium, and I will give this Club my maximum.”

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew was a delighted man yesterday and this is what he had to say about Remy:

“Remy is a player who has been on our radar for a while and we are delighted to bring him to the Club.” “He is a player who I am sure will excite our fans.”

“He has flair, hard work and commitment, and is going to bring a talent, energy and quality to St. James’ Park that our supporters will enjoy.”

“Remy has great ideas when the ball comes to him, and along with Siem de Jong is going to improve an area where we definitely needed some help.”

Remy Cabella is a great signing for us, and we just have to hope we have more good players coming through the door – maybe even this week.

What do you think?

Note: Sean Borland has a student season ticket and since he will be away in Calgary studying for a while he wants to sell his season ticket for the first half of the season. The price is £140 – which is what he paid for it – you can contact Sean at s.borland@ncl.ac.uk

    I don’t know if could fit in 25 men squad if we signed 2 striker, a fb and a cb without selling at least 5 players and it’s very hard to give youngsters any chances if we have senior players in the bench.

    who do you reckon we should sell to make space if we do get 4 more players in?

    Can we please go for a couple of strikers !
    We have enough midfielders…..
    A ‘goal scoring cb’…..(we have been after one two years) is a must, tall with pace.

    I am not greedy that will do me and we can look again in January.

    MYM, HBA, Marveaux, Obertan to name just four that will not feature for us this season under Pardrew. Then there will be the usual players going out on loan. so without a doubt we need to bring in cover for some positions, and fill the empty spaces that already exist.

    I did say I agree with you about brining in more young English players, the question is are they up to the task ahead?

    We need more of Lambeezies purples in the squad if we are going to challenge for anything. and then allow 1 or 2 of the young lads 10 – 15 minutes towards the end of the games to see how they get on.

    We don’t have many young English players in our development squad who are ready to make that step up yet.

    CB who is tall and have pace… how tall and how quick?
    Don’t need to be tall and quick, Cannavaro scored goals too, he is only 5″9. I would love to see Streete playing, he has pace for a CB.

    I know we don’t have many English youngsters, but we don’t need so many, probably 4 or 5 players.
    Campbell, Armstrong, Streete, Bigi, Sammy.

    The players you have mentioned have all had a taste of the premiership, and would probably benefit from another season on loan where they can gain some much needed first team experience.

    This all depends on Pardrew and what he wants to do with them, if he keeps them at the club then I would hope he will rotate them on the subs bench to give them a little first team experience. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    More than delighted we got the lad but more than disgusted at the excessive advertising crap.

    Those who nagging about the club have no ambition to move forward should keep quiet and learn how to be patient.
    Patience yields positive outcome almost every time.
